Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Director Capra's 1930s and 1940s films extolling the virtues of the American everyman have made him perhaps the nation's most beloved filmmaker, though contrarians dismiss his unabashedly sentimental stuff as "Capra-corn." These 21 interviews tend to support the former view but also provide grist for the latter. The earlier ones, derived mostly from the popular press, show Capra hyping then-current flicks, such as It's a Wonderful Life. The later ones, dating from the last two decades of Capra's life, are more substantive. His filmmaking career was over, and he had devoted himself to burnishing his reputation in lectures to students and at film festivals. He repeats many of the entertaining anecdotes published in his 1971 autobiography--a book greatly debunked by Joseph McBride in Frank Capra: The Catastrophe of Success (1991)--as well as his contempt for the studio system, which is exceeded only by his disdain for "intellectuals." Capra proudly declares that he aimed his films at the masses, and that accounts for both his phenomenal success and his artistic limitations. Gordon Flagg
